Being charged with kidnapping or false imprisonment is extremely serious in nature, as the most grave charges coupled with a poor defense can result in a lifetime in prison or even the death penalty.

Kidnapping And False Imprisonment Charges In Denver

In Colorado, the primary difference between kidnapping and false imprisonment is whether the victim was moved (i.e., while kidnapping involves transporting a victim - even very slightly, as in to a house next door, false imprisonment is associated with confining an individual within the location where he or she is). At times, another possible difference between these charges can be that kidnapping generally involves using the victim to extort money or other valuables, while false imprisonment does not necessarily involve this component.

Despite their subtle differences, however, kidnapping and false imprisonment charges are both complicated, as the nature of the charges filed (i.e., the degree of the felony) will depend on whether any of the following allegedly played a role in the case at hand:

  • Domestic violence or violations of restraining orders
  • Use of the Internet to lure a minor
  • Sexual assault, including sexual assault of a child
  • Use of an illegal weapon (or threatening use of a deadly weapon) to gain control over the victim
  • Whether the victim was recovered alive before an arrest or conviction

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
